I will be speaking at NKU’s Book Fest this year, talking to 5-8th graders about reading and writing. This annual event is on Friday, May 4th. Following that, I will be at my favorite bookstore signing books: the Blue Marble in Fort Thomas, Kentucky. Below is a clip from their newsletter about the event. Hope to see you there!
Spring tends to be a busy time as more people are out enjoying the beautiful weather, groups schedule more activities and schools are entering their final month of the academic year.
We’ve been keeping busy with author visits at the store and local schools, a literature conference and professional lecture, a reading celebration and ordering new books for the summer and fall seasons. It’s been great seeing familiar faces and meeting new people.
We hope you can join us for our author events over the next month. We’re honored to be hosting Will Hillenbrand,Heather Henson and Debbie Dadey in the next few weeks. Even if you’re not able to visit the store for an event, we’d be happy to have books signed and personalized for you. Autographed books make such wonderful gifts; we have two special sections of books signed by the authors and illustrators who have visited our store.
Currently, we’re showcasing our new poetry and baseball books and have special displays of books relating to theTitanic, Kentucky Derby and horses. We also have books that would make perfect gifts for moms, high school and college graduates and your favorite educators.
We’d love to see you and catch up if you can spare some time to swing by the store. We hope to see you soon!

Kentucky author Heather Henson has graciously agreed to visit our store immediately after NKU’s BookFest event. BookFest is a celebration of reading and writing for Kentucky students in grades 5-8. She’ll be signing her picture books and novels including Dream of Night [Atheneum, $15.99 hc] and Here’s How I See It, Here’s How It Is [Atheneum, $16.99 hc & $6.99 pb]. Reading Dream of Night is especially fitting at this time of year as it presents the story of a former racehorse. Ms. Henson is also the author of the award-winning That Book Woman [Atheneum, $16.99 hc] which was illustrated by David Small.
